Sen. San­ders’ State­ment on Trop­i­cal Storm Irene

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Sen. Bernie San­ders (I-Vt.) is­sued the fol­low­ing state­ment to­day as Ver­mont dealt with se­vere flood dam­age caused by Trop­i­cal Storm Irene: “This is a dev­as­tat­ing mo­ment for Ver­mont. Our thoughts go out to the peo­ple around the state deal­ing with this dis­as­ter that has caused loss of life and tens of mil­lions of dol­lars in se­vere prop­erty dam­age. I want to take this op­por­tu­nity to ap­plaud the emer­gency res­cue teams and all those who are aid­ing the vic­tims of the floods for the out­stand­ing work they are do­ing. I and the Ver­mont del­e­ga­tion will work as hard as we can with Gov. Shum­lin to make cer­tain Ver­mont re­ceives all of the help it needs and de­serves from the fed­eral gov­ern­ment.”
